Contract and Joint Research


NMRI has a range of large facilities and laboratory equipment with which to carry out research into achieving and enhancing maritime transport safety, development of ocean resources, and conservation of marine environment. Utilizing these facilities, NMRI conducts "Contract Research" (in which our researchers perform studies at our institute at the request of customers) and "Joint Research" (in which NMRI and our customers do research at our institute on shared research themes). NMRI also leases its facilities to customers so that they can perform their own research.
